What would I take...


The first long weekend of the summer season has just come to an end. Typical - it rained - cats n' dogs kinda rain I might add!
So the youngest child and I were huddled under blankets on the couch, watching some TV and this FedEx commercial comes on. The FedEx guy has been stranded on a deserted island for years with only one delivery package which he guards carefully. He finally gets back to civilization and delivers the package to the door and asks what was in the package only to find out it had a cell phone with GPS, a flashlight, bottled water and some seeds. My daughter turns to me and tells me that if she was stuck on that same island, she would want to have an endless supply of candy, her favorite stuffy - and probably her Daddy!The she asks me what 3 things I would wish for if I was stranded on a deserted island.

Well, that got me to thinking! What would I wish I had? A cell phone perhaps? Maybe, but how long would the batteries last - and what chance would I have at reception? A flashlight? Again - how long would the batteries last - and would a plane flying at 35,000 feet really see a flashlight beam? Bottled water? Well, that would probably be a good thing to have - but I'd hope that there would be some kind of spring or stream some where on that island! Seeds? Maybe, but I'm sure I could find some kind of edible plant life!

So what would I wish for? Well, I'd definitely wish to have my man with me...as for anything else....I really don't know!

What would you wish you had?
